The Theocratic War, also known as the Theocrat Rebellion by the traditional/older eJapanese Community, was an armed conflict in South Korea between the Theocrats, Japan, and displaced South Koreans, over control of the country.

The war began on August 25, 2009 when the Theocrats entered South Korea and won six of ten seats in Congress. This would allow them to impeach new president Yonai Keiko who had just liberated the country five days earlier. The first military engagement took place on August 26, when Japan conquered the sole South Korean region of Gyeongsangnam-do and re-absorbed it, hoping to keep it out of the hands of the Theocrats. The war ended on September 10 when the Theocrats were victorious in a resistance war in Gyeonggi-do, securing control of two South Korean regions for themselves.

Japan's role in the war was done with the blessing of, and in conjunction with, the original citizens of South Korea. South Korean regions were part of Japan from June 2009 until August 2009, due to the constant PTO uprisings that the nation suffered from when it was independent. When the South Korean community decided to become independent of Japan again, it opened the door for the Theocrats, who had lost control of Switzerland when it was conquered, to swoop into a new country.

In the crucial Battle of Gyeonggi-do on September 4, the Theocrats tanked the wall down at the last minute, surprising the inexperienced, under-funded, and uncoordinated Japanese military. The defeat is regarded by some as a major failure of Minamoto Yoritomo's presidency, and a sign of Minamoto's inactivity. The Theocrats' far stronger tanks were able to win despite using half as many fights as the defending side, and having only a quarter as many soldiers. Japan did not receive much help from the PEACE alliance, since a large battle was simultaneously happening in California. Also, the Theocrat tanks had often participated in United States military operations in the past, so PEACE loyalties were split.

As a response, Japan declared war on South Korea on September 7. Japan was victorious in its attack on Gyeonggi-do, but as that battle was happening, the Theocrats opened three resistance wars, winning a close fight at Chungcheongnam-do. Three days later, the Theocrats retook Gyeonggi-do via resistance war, in what would be the final battle of the Theocratic War. Months later, Japan would gradually cede more regions to South Korea, feeling they were useless.

The Theocratic Nation of South Korea controlled the country from September 2009 until January 2010, when they voluntarily left South Korea due to boredom. Since then South Korea has been a democratic, independent nation.
